For industries having noise potential, proposed in silence zones as per the Noise
(Management and Handling) Rules, the minimum distance shall be two times the
dO subject to a minimum of 100m.

ii)

It is desirable to have a minimum set back of 3m between the boundary and the
plant building to avoid construction of factor building along or close to the
boundary wall. The setback can be utilised for the development of green belt. In
case of industries falling in green/orange categories of Small Scale Industries, the
requirement of minimum set back may be dispensed with.
Siting criteria for plywood industries, hollow/ solid cement bricks units, furniture,
saw mill, laterite quarry and pig farm shall be as per circular no. PCB/T4/115/97
